TSC Responds To Teachers Attempt To Derail KCSE Marking

Friday, January 20 at Mtihani House in Nairobi, Teachers Service Commission (TSC) Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia pledged to intercede to prevent disruptions in exam marking.

“As teachers it is a mark of honor and respect to be identified and recommended for the examining exercise. We should therefore shun any attempts to put our interests before thousands of candidates, whose future we determine through the marking exercise.”

This year, KNEC employed 30,000 examiners across 35 marking centers.

However, they suffered a setback when they went on strike during the KCSE exam marking earlier this year.

The marking of KCSE examinations at St. Francis Girls High School, Mang’u, was disrupted by teacher protests about late pay and bad working conditions.

Teachers were marking CRE exam papers when the situation deteriorated.

CS Education Ezekiel Machogo and PS Belio Kipsang arrived in the school to restore order, and marking then resumed.

The marking of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examination commenced on January 2 at several marking centers throughout the nation.

In 2012, 884,263 candidates took the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exam.

Male candidates numbered 405,962 while females numbered 420,845
